Product Description

The Tamron 18-270mm f3.5-6.3 Di II PZD lens is a 15x zoom lens that features Tamron's unique Piezo Drive ultrasonic motor for silent, precise and extraordinarily fast autofocus.

The 15x zoom offers focal lengths from 18mm at the wide-angle end up to a telephoto 270mm (29-432mm in 35mm equivalent) making it an ideal, all purpose lens.

Despite its impressive performance, the Tamron 18-270mm f3.5-6.3 Di II PZD lens is both lightweight and compact, making it a great choice for travel photography.

PZD (PIEZO Drive)

Ultrasonic motors are divided into two categories depending on how the energy that moves the drive is generated: travelling wave motors and standing wave motors. The 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II PZD employs a newer technology, the PZD (PIEZO Drive), which functions according to the standing wave principle.

A standing wave ultrasonic motor utilizes high-frequency voltage to extend and turn the piezoelectric (piezoceramic) element, thus moving the entire element in a standing wave movement. The metal tip is the contact point of the element to the rotor, and moves in an elliptic motion from the swivelling motion of the moving element.

The friction from this motion subsequently turns the rotor. Standing wave ultrasonic motors have the distinct advantage of being faster, quieter and more precise and compact than their travelling wave counterparts.
